For the final pick of the pool: I'm completing the Swiss D pairing with ps241:

Cédric Hächler SUI


Happy WJC pool everyone!
Good job - I'm (pleasantly) surprised that went so well!

I don't see it, honestly. It's no different from the Yahoo Fantasy Drafts.

An odd amount of rounds with the snake format doesn't workout equally. Check my previous explanation in post #183. Hope that helps

Looks like you're right. I'm working off notes I made at work on Friday. I'll take Esa Lindell in that case.

Also, as previously stated, this pool is fixed against me!!!

Can't wait for the WJC to start --- who is setting their clock for Boxing Day? (or alternatively, just staying up drinking all night??)

I'm liking my team. Two thirds of Russia's top line so if they do good I'm set. Hopefully my goalie is named starter. I took a risk taking him 23rd but I think a winning goalie will be key in this pool

I like the team I've got. Few regrets here or there (wish I would have taken Johnny G or Rocco sooner), but it's really hard to tell where certain players will go. Especially when there's an 18 pick gap between my picks.

Ok, well it seemed like before people wanted to have a replacement draft for cut/injured players before the tournament started. Here's a list of the players that have been cut/injured right now...

64. Canadian Airlines - LW Henrik Haapala (FIN) (I saw people listing Haapala on the first line, sorry Canadian Airlines)
88. Hammer Slammer - D Esa Lindell (FIN)

And still waiting on a USA defenseman to get cut. So there might be one more.

Also, didn't notice this till just now, but Tobias Rieder on Hank's team I had listed on my draft board that I made, but scratched him off a week ago cause he is listed as out indefinitely with a bone fracture in his foot. Not sure if he will end up playing.

We could also draft one more round for everyone just to make it an even ten, but then allow a supplemental round after that for the cut/injury replacements, but as I said earlier I wouldn't care either way whichever you guys would prefer.

Honestly it seems pretty pointless.

Giving everyone random bottom line players just to even up at ten doesn't really have the desired effect of evening out a roster in my opinion.

Yeah I see what you mean. If you look at the guys left theres a few you could see getting a few points, but it would be stretching it pretty thin for another 10.

They're keeping him on the final roster. He'll play after his suspension is over.
